GRANT- Travel Grant for Use of Library at Western Washington University

Posted by: Edward Vajda <eddievajda@yahoo.com>

The Center for East Asian Studies of Western Washington University is
offering travel grants for research in the WWU Libraries on any
subject dealing with Mongolia and the Mongols. Two grants of up to
$500 each will be awarded in any one calendar year to scholars,
including doctoral candidates, who at the time of application reside
more than 500 miles from Bellingham. Applicants from institutions
with no or few Inner Asian resources are given preference.

The grants, financed by the Henry G. Schwarz Endowment Fund for
Mongolian Studies, are designed to help scholars use the more than
9,300 books and dozens of periodicals dealing with Mongolia. This
large collection of materials, broadly representative of all parts of
Mongolia and of every major group of Mongols elsewhere in the world,
is known not only for its books on language, literature, the
humanities and social sciences but also for its unparalleled resources
in medicine and the natural sciences. It is supported by more than
2,700 titles on Tibet and substantial collections on neighboring
areas, such as Eastern Turkestan (Xinjiang), and the indigenous
populations of Eastern Siberia, the Russian Far East and Manchuria.

Applications must be submitted by August 1 for research during
September through January and by January 1 for research during
February through June. They should include a brief description of the
research project, an up-to-date curriculum vitae, and an estimated
budget. When completed, they should be sent to: Director, Center for
East Asian Studies, Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA 98225-9057.
